When I Grow Up I Want to Be...

Sorry but Carine kicks Anna's ass any day, any night, all day, all night!!!! No competition, at all!!! French women have that certain, je ne sais quoi, no? Plus her and her partner have been together for over 30 years with two kids. I'll take a partner over a husband any day!

The World Loses a Legend

A legend passed away this weekend. First time I saw Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, I couldn't believe the beauty of this man. My only other comparisons are the great Marlon Brando and the constant player, Warren Beatty.

Paul Newman tried to be anything but the "Paul Newman" you see on screen or on stage. Always guarding his privacy from the public eye, this award winning actor, director and devoted philanthropist, donated over $120 million (unprecedented by any other actor or actress) to charities from his 100+ product line of salad dressings and pasta sauces. In 2006, he quietly turned over all proceeds and the entire value of his ownership in Newsman's Own to charity.

Dear Mr. Newman,

You will always be this blue-eyed, blond haired beautiful, beautiful man. The one who has stayed faithful and married to your beautiful wife, the one who continually challenges himself, the one with a dry humor, the one who despite all the evils in the world (especially in Hollywood) was able to stay private and true and inspiring. You will truly always be to me, Brick Pollit. Only you could have stolen the spotlight from the goddess that is Liz.

The world has lost another one of its greats. Thank you for gracing me with your beauty.

The Inconvenient Truth

Anyone that knows me knows my undying love of polar bears. They're my favorite animal, I adopted one for a past special person and if I had money, I would give much to save them from drowning. They are facing a cruel death and I just can't deal. I mean what, there's like a polar bear graveyard at the bottom of the Arctic? Uh!!! 

Being from Canada I've learned that Canadians are much more conscious of the environment and doing this to preserve it. Everyone, I mean EVERYONE recycles, we all compost, I personally never litter and last time I was in TO, I saw more bikes than ever!!! Since living in NYC I've realized that the majority of my fellow residents here care little or none about the environment. I mean my work doesn't really recycle, there are very little recycling bins around the city and people really just don't practice too much conservation. It's quite sad.

Oh well, one more thing to be proud of about being Canadian. 

Look at this poor little fella. Shoot me and put me out of my misery.

In Your Space

Found this new blog. The Selby is photographer Todd Selby's blog where he photographs his friends and subjects in their homes. Every shot is beautiful and he captures his subjects in a way that isn't as violating as you would think, since he is entering into their homes, a most private space. I love how he captures everyone in their most natural habitat without seeming intrusive - you don't feel like a peeping Tom.

Favorite so far:
  • aya and kiyoshi kanai - just b/c it's a daughter and a dad & i love my dad
  • matthew eikelberger - color, color, color
  • paola kudacki and james penfold - boy meets girl - minimalism, cleanliness, art and SHOES!
  • cheri messerli and david rager - perfection at its best - dark, classic, amalgamation of two lives - I LOVE THIS THE MOST
says cheri messerli and david ragerare moving - maybe i should look into this.

Drool, Sigh, Heart..

Fashion Week in New York City will only leave you weak, breathless, hungover, begging and pleading for more. But amazing things comes out of it. . A couple of my favorites that I have time to post are below. You can take a look at the complete collections at, links provided!

Loved Rag & Bone for awhile but after seeing this complete collection, they have reached ultimate status for me. Blazers looked amazing and loved all the little stovepipe pants with throws of leather and floral. Have a looksy.

Golden boy of fashion, Alexander Wang proved once again why he is worth all the, leather, cotton, color...drool!!! Cannot, CANNOT wait for the shoes. Old news I know but I was made aware a couple of weeks ago by my lovely fashion friend so I'm uber excited.

Sigh to it all.

I Weep for the Things That Make Me Smile

Topshop entering New York this October, drool since their Fall/Winter 2008 Look Book is to die for, DIE! Take a look here. Guaranteed this is where 99% of my money is going to. The rest of the photos are just things I have my little eyes on.

Also, now in love with Bijules. Everyone's probably heard of this but me but hey, sometimes late to the bandwagon is better than never. Have a looksy.

Really though, all I really need is a new pair of boots. Whether it be Fiorentini and Baker, N.D.C., Frye or the ones below, I don't care, I just need a damn pair. Oh and the MJ but that's a given now, along with many more due to my righteous connection.

What is it so wrong that material possessions make me happy and giddy and feel all warm all over? At least I admit it and don't deny it. Thank God my PO from Karen Walker for fall has come in, hopefully this will tie me over until my wallet gets replenished.

Happy shopping and loving.
